French Pottery

I was in London having lunch at La Fromagerie, when I became distracted from my delicious beet salad by rows and rows of shelves filled with the most remarkable pottery. Simple, but perfect. Turns out, it was an assortment of Les Guimards Stoneware that the owner had collected. Les Guimards is a family-owned workshop founded in 1976 in Burgundy, France that builds on the pottery tradition of the region with understated pieces for an elegant and cozy table. I fantasized about tossing out every plate and bowl in my kitchen and replacing them with these lovely treasures, but settled on three pieces to call my own.
